  1. I’m begging you not to watch the new Kingsman! BECAUSE you love the first one so much, as do I, you should not spoil that experience with the rubbish (British nod) that is Kingsman: The Golden Circle. I’m not being overly critical. It’s just plain terrible. Pretend it doesn’t exist and move on with your life. Just rewatch the first one. It’s all you’ll ever need from the franchise.
